Carcass Camera
« on: January 22, 2018, 12:03:01 PM »
Buddy and I picked up a roadkill deer last week, figured Iíd put a camera over the carcass and see what we could see, most of the 400+ images were ravens, which killed the batteries after a couple days unfortunately, but here are a couple that I figured were worth sharing

Cool, now you know where to go to kill a cat. It's always fun to put cameras on carcasses. You'll get less birds if you put it in the woods where it's not so easily seen, but I've done it both ways. Coolest photo I got was a bobcat and coyote at the same time, with the bobcat up on a stump and the coyote directly below on the ground.

Planning on going back out and doing some calling this week to see if I can get him to come play... With the stench of this carcass the last thing we wanted to do was move it lol. Backed up truck, dumped from can, drove away  :chuckle: it was hit pretty solid broadside, everything erupted  :puke:

The cats were pretty neat for sure, I love seeing them, the eagle definitely caught me by surprise though!

In the first picture is something you DON'T see to often, a Redtail Hawk right there with the ravens and or crows.
Nice cat pictures, my kid will be sending my trail cams back here shortly, then I can get them set out.

I think, not 100% certain, itís a juvenile eagle. Havenít seen one up close too many times but zooming in you can see a bit better. Thereís another photo thatís a better one of the bird but I canít seem to post it. Hereís some zoomed in a bit. Thoughts??

I,d still say it's a juvenile red tail.

I agree - an immature red-tailed hawk.
The reddish colored breast is the clincher.

Between the red on the breast and the size of it.

Google "immature redtail hawk" and you'll see the tail feathers aren't the same, I'm going with immature eagle.

A couple years ago there was a black retail HAWK the hung around the corner of 67th and locke road, Marysville.

Miss every one has seen pied deer and some have seen totally white deer.

Animals do have different color phases.

Look at the black bears, blond, cinnamon, brown, black.
